George VI, Proposed Visit Crown, 1949

In 1949 it was proposed that King George VI would visit New Zealand, but it never happened! This was a bit of a problem as the New Zealand Government had gone to the trouble of issuing a Silver Crown! This is the ONLY New Zealand Crown for King George VI. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a Silver Fern on the other. Struck in 500 fine Silver in 1949, it has a mintage of only 200,000 pieces. We can offer the ONLY George VI Silver Crown of New Zealand in Good Extremely Fine condition. It is a very difficult crown to get and this one piece represents a complete type denomination of this Monarch for this country.

Elizabeth II, Scarce 1960 Crown EF

In 1960 the Royal Mint issued a Special Crown for the British Exhibition in New York. It is without doubt, the most difficult of the Queen Elizabeth II Crowns to obtain. The mintage figure is just over a million coins, but they almost never turn up, where are they all? On the obverse is the Queen, the first time her portrait had been on a crown and on the reverse are four shields. Here we offer this coin in Extremely Fine.

Canada, 1 Cent Large

Canada is made up of a number of different countries or provinces. Three of them issued coins on their own and now is your opportunity to own one of them.

You have New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island plus Canada. They issued bronze pennies all of which had a portrait of Queen Victoria on them. Here we present the Canadian Large Cent. It is well over 100 years old and not that easy to find.
